In May 2011 Claire showcased 13 undiscovered children's authors and illustrators from her intermediate and advanced level courses. Submissions were selected by
Pauliina Malinen Teodoro who has 15 years experience in Picture Book publishing. The show continued throughout July 2011 in the Hornsey Library, Crouch End, the area local to where Claire's courses are taught.
